E. H. MacDonald, was named after his fathers favorite author, Henry David Thoreau. It seemed natural that two of Thoreau MacDonalds great interests should be art and nature. Although Thoreau worked with a variety of media during his career, he decided early on to concentrate on black-and-white illustration--an art form in which he had few equals.

E. R. Hunter once wrote that, because of Thoreau MacDonald, We have some of the loveliest drawings of bird life in Canada. Thoreau MacDonalds artistic career began in 1922, when three of his works were published in The Canadian Forum. He served as the Forums Art Editor for the next ten years and his work came to be influenced by the American painter Georgia OKeeffe. He is best known, however, for his book illustration and design. In all he designed or illustrated 200 books.
